    I was looking around Amazon, setting up my Christmas wish list, and stumbled across these.

    So, I'm curious if anyone has experience with these. I really, really like the concept of them, and they looks like they'd be somewhat comfortable..
    But I'm too afraid of sucky thumbsticks or bad buttons to drop $60 US on them going on the word of random, possibly fake Amazon reviews.

    Youtube Bob from Wulff Den's opinion:

    If you were looking for a way to play Smash in handheld, don't.

    Man, my opinion is meaningless when it comes to Smash, considering that I'd rather play Legacy XP or Brawl than Ultimate. But I guess that tells me all I need to know.

    Yeah to clarify, that was his review of these controllers specifically. The buttons, especially the A button, are nearly flush and painful to use. The bumpers don't activate everywhere they should and you really need to choke up when pressing them. The sticks appear to be standard joycon sticks, the octal gates are too far out to effect their use at all, although they are oriented wrong anyway. In short all you are getting is the gamecube button layout in exchange for pain.

    That sounds absolutely awful. Glad I didn't pull the trigger right away, then.
